Square law between spatial frequency of spatial correlation function of scattering potential of tissue and spectrum of scattered light
Author(s): Wanrong Gao

Paper Abstract

The significance of beam condition for scattered light from random tissue is analyzed for a practical optical imaging system with a finite numerical aperture. It is shown that in the transmitted illumination case, the information carrying part of the spectrum of the scattered light is proportional to the square of the spatial frequency of the spatial correlation function of the scattering potential of the medium. The result may be helpful in interpreting images obtained with microscopes in biological studies.
